If you want, yes. But for me this word has no connection to anime :) I
mean that's probably where it comes from (because of няяя!) but I don't really think of
its origins when I use it.
In a way it's similar to the word teenager, because at least to me it's also an affix
that got an independent life (also used in вкусняшка etc).


I see. I told my teacher about it, she reacted with an anime joke :) She was like "did
a young girl tell you that?" So I wasn't sure whether it was just a variant on "cute
person" or whether the anime connotation was that prevalent.

עכשיו כמאת סיימתי ספר העברית שלי. זה לא הסיף: יש לי עוד שלושה עשרה פרקים לקרוא. העברית
שלי משתפר מיום ליום, אפשר להכיר את זה מהרמת שלי. בשבוע הבאה. לשיעורי בית אני צריך
להסתכל על סרט וידאו, ולכתב כמה משפטים עליו. זה מהפכה בעולם הבלשנות שלי. לאת, לאת אני
מגיע למטרי.

Apart from my Hebrew, which is going well (3 more Assimil lessons to go and am on
chapter 5 of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), I continue to study my other
languages more haphazardly but arriving at good conclusions. I have noticed improvement
in several languages (particularly Russian, Romanian and Hebrew), some minor
improvements (French), and good-enough levels in the others (except maybe Breton but
meh). Once I am done with that textbook I will move on to DLI Korean (I will be
ditching Hebrew for a while after that in terms of textbooks - moving to native
material exclusively).

And I've started Portuguese now, and completed the first four lessons. What has struck
me the most isn't the language difficulties itself (vocab, grammar), but how important
pronunciation is. No matter how I try, I know what the sounds are but they can't seem
to exit my mouth right. My Portuguese sounds bad, even if it's not that awful in
itself. And by god will I have to get used to putting accents on words again. I hated
learning them when I studied French, haha...

Not so much improvement in textbook study (still a little sporadic) but the one thing I
remain amazed about is how much Russian I get in daily, and that's without thinking "I
have to study perfective verbs today..." - it just works.

I am looking forward to Romania. I leave April 2nd (arrive 3rd at night...)

Ok, so I have finished Assimil Hebrew last weekend. This means I can now switch back my
focus to other things (namely, Korean) and I've also started doing some Portuguese. I
have even seen some tables for irregular present tense verb conjugations! (ir, ser,
estar). Portuguese looks like a lot of fun, especially because I feel it is easy in
comparison to other languages I'm studying right now (looking at you Korean) so.

Bravo for finishing Assimil Hebrew! (Or any assimil actually, it's my nemesis!)

Спасибо.

По пути языков, вчера мы с несколько штуками встретились, т.е. русский, иврит,
португальский и корейский. Обучение корейского очень медленное дело, это я даже пять
месяцев назад не мог бы представить себе, как сложно все такое. Ну и вот, я еще понимаю
несколько слов, фраз, и смысл, а я совсем не бы сказал, что я говорю по-корейски, даже
если уже умею произносить несколько фраз без проблем. Это просто занимает столько
времени   учить такой большой словарь, мне страшно подумать как достигать все мои цели,
но в этом плане просто нужно разбираться, меньше думать - проходит время, приходит
успех.

Португальский совсем легче мне, на слух еще сложно но несколько основы уже понимаю, и
дальше пойдем отсюда, это будет мягкий, легкий способ, кажется. Зачем не учить такой
язык, который можно приобрести без морок?

И кроме того, русский слушал, доделал задание иврита - все хорошо в моем мире, я
доволный журавушка.

Korean is indeed very difficult. Have you checked out my Korean Anki Sentence deck? I made it specifically for beginners and I believe you could benefit a lot from it even if you don't like studying with Anki in general.
